Book: Contemporary Puritan Salafism

Chapter: Constructing In-Group and Out-Group

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.27342


The chapter probes into the construction of the in-group and the out-group. Salafi Purists mainly concern themselves with the purification of Islam including spreading their creed to eliminate deviant practices through education. This chapter elaborates on the topic of how “others” should be treated and it illustrates the group’s view on segregation and emigration.
